Quotes About Managers Create Complexity

Managers Create Complexity Quotes: Insecure managers create complexity. Frightened, nervous managers use thick convoluted planning books and busy slides filled with everything they've known since childhood... ... .

Managers Create Complexity Quote: As a result of overdiversification, their (active managers) returns get watered down. Diversification covers up ignorance.

Bill Clinton is probably about as religious as I am, meaning zero, but his managers made a point of making sure that every Sunday morning he was in the Baptist church singing hymns.

Managers Create Complexity Saying: Self-dealing, essentially, occurs when managers run companies to line their own pockets instead of those of the companies' owners.

Quote about Managers Create Complexity: Given the complexity of interpersonal relationships and institutions and the complexity of co-ordination of the actions of many people, it is enormously unlikely that, even if there were one ideal pattern for society, it could be arrived at in an a priori fashion.

Sayings about Managers Create Complexity: The complexity of C++ (even more complexity has been added in the new C++), and the resulting impact on productivity, is no longer justified.
